Wanderer Weekly #28 – Turkey to Istanbul for a Decision
It’s week 28 of the intrepid hippie wandering the globe 50 years ago this week. We find Stevie Wander traversing by bus in Turkey from southeastern Turkey to northwestern Turkey, crossing the Bosphoros to Istanbul and Europe. He travels part of the way with his buddy Lad. They depart midway through the journey then reunite in Old Istanbul. Istanbul culture fascinates with the Golden Horn and old Constantinople, connecting Asia with Europe. The wandering hippie has a decision to make – go home or continue the journey? Check out the latest installment of the adventurous commemorative moment in time captured on the hippie trail by Stevie Wander.
Co-author Steve Reifman celebrates the 50th anniversary of the ultimate hippy trail journey. His adventure, the inspiration for the book Wanderer co-written with F.T. Burke, took him across four continents through 26 countries in 1970-1971. Now, on the Golden Anniversary of his adventure, Steve Reifman – or “Stevie Wander,” as he likes to be called – tells the true tales behind the story.
